Elements:Spacers

Bootstrap 4 added some very useful spacer utilities to allow you to set element margins & padding uses simple CSS classes. These allow you to layout and space out content with ease.

Class name format

The spacer classes following this format for xs screenwidth: {property}{sides}-{size} and the following format for for sm, md, lg, and xl {property}{sides}-{breakpoint}-{size}

Where property is one of:

  • m = margin
  • p = padding

Where sides is one of:

  • t = margin-top or padding-top
  • b = margin-bottom or padding-bottom
  • l = margin-left or padding-left
  • r = margin-right or padding-right
  • x = x-axis *-left and *-right
  • y = y-axis *-top and *-bottom
  • blank = all sides margin or padding on all 4 sides of the element

Where size is one of:

  • 0 = removes margin or padding by setting it to 0
  • 1 = sets the margin or padding to 1rem * .25
  • 2 = sets the margin or padding to 1rem * .5
  • 3 = sets the margin or padding to 1rem
  • 4 = sets the margin or padding to 1rem * 1.5
  • 5 = sets the margin or padding to 1rem * 3
  • 6 = sets the margin or padding to 1rem * 4.5
  • 7 = sets the margin or padding to 1rem * 6
  • 8 = sets the margin or padding to 1rem * 7.5
  • 9 = sets the margin or padding to 1rem * 9
  • 10 = sets the margin or padding to 1rem * 10.5

These spacers can be applied to all elements and also combined.

HR tags

Combining the spacers with hr tags is a useful way to space on content and we've added 2 custom classes for hr tags to make them even more useful:

<hr class="hr-blank" /> : removes the border attribute to create plain white-space.

<hr class="hr-lg" /> : enlarges the border attribute to create a thicker border.

HR tag colours

You can change the colour of HR tags using the following classes .hr-COLOUR :

.hr-muted
.hr-primary
.hr-info
.hr-success
.hr-warning
.hr-danger
.hr-white
.hr-grey
.hr-grey-dark
.hr-primary-faded
.hr-primary-darkend

Widths

Quick adjust an elements width to these predefined percentages, this can also be combined with the .mx-auto class to center the item.

You can also apply these per breakpoint & combine them using: .w-sm-[5-100|auto] , .w-md-[5-100|auto] , .w-lg-[5-100|auto] & , .w-xl-[5-100|auto]
